The Morning Haul

Good Morning! Enjoy these below links with a cup of coffee.

“Keith is a bright, young coach and a terrific recruiter,” Sarkisian said. “I think he’ll be a great fit with our new defensive staff, in particular Justin Wilcox, our new coordinator.”

Utah seems like the most likely No. 2 in the South… the North could produce a surprise team — Washington State and Oregon State will be much better — but Cal, Washington and Stanford are the candidates there… Cal and Stanford have the defense; Washington has the Qb. Hard to say between them.

The defense was a disaster in the Alamo Bowl, and new coordinator Justin Wilcox, who arrives from Tennessee, better hit the ground running. The good news is that the offense should be potent, even without TB Chris Polk.

The Huskies were expected to struggle because they lost four key participants on a team that advanced to the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. Washington also replaced its departing stars with several newcomers.

5. Tony Wroten, Washington (Last Week: 9): 17.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.3 apg
Wroten got to the line 18 times against Seattle earlier in the week, finishing with 24 points. Has gaudy numbers, and has also turned it over two or fewer times in three of his last five games.

On Wroten: “I think he’s really good, I mean extremely good. He’s got a really high IQ. Some of the passes he sees on the court, you just can’t teach. He has Brandon Roy type instincts.”

Pac-12 teams have lost to the likes of Loyola Marymount, Fairfield, Northern Arizona, Montana State, Idaho, California-Riverside and Cal Poly. All were topped by UCLA’s infamous flop job, an 86-66 drubbing at the hands of Middle Tennessee. At home.
